What is music education?

Rigorous and stimulating in nature, our program provides an environment that both challenges and prepares you to function in various capacities within the professional world of music.

Why music education at OSU?

Large enough to offer you rewarding performance opportunities, our music department is also small enough to provide you with a welcoming and supportive atmosphere to study music education. You'll have the opportunity to work with faculty who are nationally and internationally renowned artists and music scholars. The program also leads you toward completing an Oklahoma teacher's certificate.

Career Paths

Music education graduates are prepared for success in a wide variety of musical careers that include performance, teaching, working in the music industry and beyond. Our graduates have pursued successful careers in a variety of fields:
